I'm Filipina, but people mistake me for being a Latina...
Oh, the most random "ethnicity mistake" was when someone thought I was Korean.
Pretty funny... X]

People think I'm Chinese or Japanese...when I'm actually Vietnamese. It's no big deal. I correct them politely and insist that a lot of people make that mistake.

But then there's the "Who cares? You all look the same!" response you get from some people. The people that say that really get on my nerves. Really now, that is just ridiculous.

Most people think I'm Italian or Latino. I'm Chinese-Filipino. I know I don't really look that Filipino or Chinese (though I think I am still clearly of mixed Asian decent), so I got over it. I was surprise, though, when they asked my mother what part of Mexico we were from in the Phillipines.
